LT Wade Announces Debut Album 'Transient' - Shares Single 'Lost Angeles'
Having recently shared news of his debut LP Transient, to be released July 27th via Dopeness Records NYC, LT Wade has today shared another stellar track from the album, this time titled "Lost Angeles". It's a fun, satirical look at the more memorable characters that make up the Los Angeles scene.
The album's title is a case of life imitating art, given that over its two year creation, Wade moved from London to San Francisco and then finally to New York City. Sonically Transient reflects all three cities: tracks like "My Sun & Stars" and "Lost Angeles" fully embrace the West Coast/California sound - "Hard To Know" and "Hell Of A Night" incorporate a more European/Krautrock feel to them and "This City" and "A Summers Dream" were recorded in NYC this past winter with jazz saxophones and more industrial tones.
Transient was written, recorded, produced and mixed by Wade himself. Wade enlisted close friend Olly Betts of The Duke Spirit to record all of the drums on the album. When he moved to NYC, Wade started working with friend and musician Grant Zubritsky (of Chet Faker's band) who played sax, keys and bass on a couple of the albums tracks. The "secret" track at the end of the song "This City" is a cut and paste interview Wade recorded and put to music with a friend and works an extension of the song about the trials and tribulations of living in NYC.
LT Wade is the moniker of British musician/producer Liam Wade, who began his professional career as lead guitarist for Courtney Love in Los Angeles in 2007 before moving back to London to join forces with former members of Black Wire to form Lord Auch. In 2013 Wade formed FURS with Olly Betts of The Duke spirit and sister/vocalist Elle Wade. FURS released their debut album "Just Kids" in the summer of 2016. Over the course of his career Wade has been on the road with indie legends Johnny Marr, Gaz Coombes and the Allah Las.
